My .... goodness It's great to have another distro on board. I for one would be very very interested in hearing about the future plans for JDS, it has the potential to give the other enterprise desktop OSes (and I include Linux in that) a run for their money.

Welcome to LQ

Thumbs up It's a testiment

Jeremy,

You have added two forums to the site in about a week or so. Some people may think this is an overnight success. They'll never realize how long you work on these things.

Thanks for being who you are!

Welcome to LQ

Perhaps I am incorrect, but isn't Suns JDS a full linux distro!? As I understand it, it is based off of SuSE originally... But regardless.. it is still linux...

I am also very excited about JDS and I hope to try it out very soon!! Good job Jeremy!

JDS uses SLES 8 in Release 2003 and then Release 2.

Release three (in beta) will utilize SLES 9. It runs a Gnome based desktop with major engineering from Sun.

It's Linux. They offer the same desktop as an additional component to Solaris 9 & eventually 10. Though they don't push Solaris as a desktop.

Sun internally uses JDS Linux.

New Distro Forum - Sun JDS

Hi Sun JDS,

Welcome!! I'm a newbie myself (to both this forum and Linux) so I can't really say more than warmly welcome you.

Best regards,

John
